Collusion, Bots, Super-User Accounts to Cheat

Online Poker Super Account users have been making cheat headlines these days, but where does Super User account cheating rank in the overall realm of online poker cheating? Well, in spite of all the headlines and big-time scams at Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet, super-user account cheating still ranks third. Collusion, just as it is in brick and mortar cardrooms, remains the number-one method of cheating online, followed by Bots and then Super Account users. I do expect the Super-User account incidents to diminish, though I see both Collusion Play and Bots sitting at online poker tables to increase, with the biggest threat being the development of even more intelligent bots.
